Some of the items on display include Leon Adams’ vest and chaps, Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey’s saddle, and postcards from Tad Lucas’ personal collection.

Update (3/26/2020):

Yesterday, March 25, Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued a Stay at Home executive order that all Colorado residents should stay in place except for essential needs and services. This took effect at 6 am this morning. In compliance, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and offices will be closed temporarily beginning today through April 11th.
Currently, all Hall of Fame staff are working remotely, and we continue to keep up to date on all daily workload. This is a temporary closure and we will be reopened soon. We are utilizing this time to continue our daily work here at the museum, catch up on projects that may have been put on the back burner and finish several on-going projects that were in process.

Our objective during this challenging time is first and foremost to ensure the safety of our guests and staff and to support state and federal government directives. Now more than ever, it is important for us to encourage each other. These are very trying times in our country. We are all in this together. If we all do our part, this will end sooner than later, and we can get back to normal as much as we can as soon as we can.

We will continue to stay engaged with our fans and followers on all our social media platforms. During this temporary closure, we want to continue to stay engaged with all of you and interact with you while at the same time provide for you an opportunity to learn a little more about the Hall of Fame, our inductees and various tidbits about rodeo and our history.

We will be developing various interactions for you all to participate in on both Facebook and Instagram. Keep watching and following us as we will be rolling these fun engagements out very soon. We know many of you are sheltered at home and looking for ways to entertain yourself and your family. We hope this helps all of us pass some time, entertain each other, educate us and lets us have a little fun. If you do not currently follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, please do so. We will see you over there!

We hope each of you are staying safe and healthy. We look forward to the time when we can open our doors and welcome you back to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame! We can’t wait to see you when we do.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Today, March 24, we made the difficult decision to close the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy temporarily due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. This decision was not made lightly. We believe we have multiple responsibilities to our community, in addition to the responsibilities to our guests, members, visitors, fans and staff.

While the State of Colorado and the City of Colorado Springs are not currently under any mandatory order to Shelter in Place, we as a country have been asked to practice social distancing, stay at home as much as we can, minimize our contact with the general public and several other orders put in place to slow the spread of the virus and flatten the curve of new cases. We want to do our part.

For the most part, people are not traveling currently. Locals are staying home. We will miss our guests. But we will work hard to ensure that we are here and ready to receive visitors as soon as we can reopen safely.

On Sunday March 22, Colorado Governor Polis issued Executive Order D2020-013 ordering Colorado non critical-workplaces to reduce in-person workforce by fifty percent due to the presence of COVID-19 in the State beginning March 24. The order directs all Colorado employers to implement tele-work capabilities to the greatest extent possible. If tele-work is not practical or possible, the Governor encourages employers to stagger work schedules to reduce the proximity of workers during work hours and to keep employees on payroll as we endure this temporary disruption to commerce together. Both the PRCA and the ProRodeo Hall of Fame are currently abiding by this order.

We have not laid any employees off nor do we plan to do so. This is a temporary closure and we will be reopened very soon. We are utilizing this time to continue our daily work here at the museum, catch up on projects that may have been put on the back burner and finish several on-going projects that were in process. We have repurposed museum admission employees to assist in these projects so they can keep their hours and still receive a paycheck. That is very important to us.

Our objective during this challenging time is first and foremost to ensure the safety of our guests and staff and to support state and federal government directives. Now more than ever, it is important for us to encourage each other. These are very trying times in our country. We are all in this together. If we all do our part, this will end sooner than later, and we can get back to normal as much as we can as soon as we can.

We hope each of you are staying safe and healthy. We look forward to the time when we can open our doors and welcome you back to the ProRodeo Hall of Fame! We can’t wait to see you when we do.
